  • Summary: High-speed motorcycle racing and high-stakes futuristic combat collide in X63--an intoxicating, highly addictive arcade experience. Feel every razor sharp turn and roller-coaster drop in the pit of your stomach as you smash through the sound barrier at speeds over 750 mph.

  1. Acclaim Cheltenham has successfully combined graphics, sound and game play into a racer that has heart-pounding speed, dizzying visuals, great control and excellent multiplayer functions.
  2. Offers some excellent gameplay and a fun multiplayer racing experience.
  3. Those who waited for the GameCube version of Extreme-G 3 have been rewarded with a superior version of the game....A smart and solid racing game that provides an amazing feeling of true speed.

    The game is all about physics and speed. XG3 is jam packed with both.
  5. 83
    Although the single player game has a few too many potential dead ends, the accessible gameplay and multiplayer support for up to four people means it's a surefire crowd pleaser.

    Most WipeOut race fans will play Extreme G3, say, "wow, cool," and just drool over how potentially cool "WipeOut Fusion" is gonna be.
  7. There are only 12 cycles on a huge track, leaving you by yourself for much of the race. [Jan 2002, p.128]

    I can't even believe one idiot said this game is better on PS2, it's got better graphics and frame rate on the Cube, plus the addition of 4 player. This game is significantly better on the GameCube than the PS2. The game itself is awesome, better than "Wipeout" or "F-Zero" in my opinion. Expand

    4 player mode rules, and in GC looks fine, more than in PS2 where there isn't even 4 player version. Buy it for GC if you like FZeroGX.

    THis is a great game. The only problems are no storyline and the 2-player team mode is incredibly difficult. Other than that, it is GREAT.

    I played the two versions of this game and honestly I think PlayStation 2's version is much better than this version. And also I love the Dual Shock 2. It´s perfect. Expand

    Above average, but not great. Average racer-boy gameplay, with good but not great graphics. I dunno - XG3 just didn't do much for me.

    Very very very disappointed with this game. the only saving grace are the tracks which aren't enough to warrant a purchase or rental (swapped out same day for another). Expand
